Blueberry Corn Muffins

There tender blueberry corn muffins are bursting with blueberries and flavor. For a different fruity taste, I sometimes substitute chopped apples for the berries. —Genevieve Fairchild, Chester, Iowa

    We like eating a sweet cornbread with chili, so I follow this recipe but leave out the berries. As a dessert muffin, I bake as is. Delicious.

    We made these for dinner - excellent. The best blueberry muffin I have ever had. The muffins turned out very moist and delicious. The recipe says 12 servings but there were only 3 remaining after dinner for my family of four!!! This one is a keeper!!!
